Modern Differential Equations: Theory, Applications, Technology
Martha L. Abell, Georgia Southern University and James P. Braselton, Georgia Southern University
111996
This introductory equations book is one of the first to integrate technology throughout the text. Using a computer algebra system (CAS) helps students to solve problems (both specific and general cases), to reason spatially through visualisation, to compare changing variables and parameters, to make inferences, and to evaluate outcomes. Students learn how and when to use technology tools by examples, in exercises, and in applications. Features: * Numerous graphs and figures help students visualize and interpret differential equations and their solutions. * "In Touch with Technology" exercises in almost every section require students to use graphing software or a computer ...
